Traveling often to Italy often, makes it hard to appreciate the American version of Gelato but Paciugo is really quite good. There are a lot of favors to choose from and the black cherry and hazelnut are two of our favorites. The environment is clean and when not too busy fun to relax in. There are also other things to...

Ran in out of the rain and got a small gelato, which turned out to be big enough for two! They will let you sample any flavor and it is worth it to try them!

I've had better gelato but what we ate here was okay. The raspberry and the limeno was quite tart when I would like to have tasted a little more sweet. Too be fair I could have tasted it first butnhavingbhad gelato before I didn't feel the need. It was super busy but the staff were very pleasant. Very expensive.

After a Saturday with great nieces in the park we decide for a sweet treat....the gelato and cookies made two little girls very happy! Aunt Donna was pretty happy with her double scoop of mint chocolate chip. Friendly staff and the best gelato.

I love taking the kids here for dessert! They let you taste as many of the flavors as you like before picking your favorite(s) and you can have as many as 5 flavors in a bowl. We love it!

I was driving through st Pete and saw a geloto store. I love mango geloto so I went out if my way to come here. The mango was discusting. And if u want three or more flavors for the same price as one flavor they mix them together. Some flavors do not go well with others. They get one star... More

We went based on other reviews. And the location is awesome. Right on Beach Drive. However the gelato was as good as I've had other places.
